Rariorum plantarum historia.

Antwerp: Jan Moretus , 1601.

Describing approximately 100 new species, the Rariorum plantarum historia gathers accounts from Clusius’s earlier botanical tours of Spain (Rariorum aliquot stirpium per Hispanias observatarum historia, 1576) and Austria and Hungary (Rariorum aliquot stirpium per Pannoniam, Austriam, et vicinas quasdam provincias observatarum historia, 1583) with extensive new material. Particularly notable are descriptions of tulips, which Clusius had introduced to the Netherlands with the establishment of the hortus academicus at Leiden in 1593, and the first printing of the Fungorum in Pannoniis observatorum brevis historia, the first treatise dedicated exclusively to mycology. The work includes 1109 woodcuts.

Placental tissue destruction and insufficiency from COVID-19 causes stillbirth and neonatal death from hypoxic-ischemic injury: A study of 68 cases with SARS-CoV-2 placentitis from 12 countries.

Arch. Pathol. Lab. Med., 2022.

Order of authorship in the original publication: Schwartz, Avvad-Portari, Babál, et al....
"Design.—Case-based retrospective clinico-pathological analysis by a multinational group of 44 perinatal specialists from 12 countries of placental and autopsy pathology findings from 64 stillborns and 4 neonatal deaths having placentas testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 following delivery to mothers with COVID-19."

"Conclusions.—The pathology abnormalities composing SARS-CoV-2 placentitis cause widespread and severe placental destruction resulting in placental malperfusion and insufficiency. In these cases, intrauterine and perinatal death likely results directly from placental insufficiency and fetal hypoxic-ischemic injury. There was no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 involvement of the fetus had a role in causing these deaths."

Paris: J.-B. Baillière et fils, 1869.

Médecin Principal de la Marine, Berchon based his research on the increasing numbers of tattooed sailors in the French navy. In 1861 he observed the transmission of syphilis from one sailor to another, who claimed to be a virgin. Berchon decided that the disease had been transmitted through spit in the act of tattooing, and as a result the French navy began to discourage or prohibit tattooing - one element in driving of the art underground.

On y joint un appendix sur l'ordre des constitutions épidémiques ... 2 vols.

Rouen & Paris: Didot le jeune, 1778.

This work is divided into four parts:

  • "The first, which occupies the first volume, contains a general description of Normandy, considerations about its climate, its people, their morals and habits, and the most common diseases that affect this province.
    Lépecq de la Clôture divided the entire province by region, according to the deposit of the mountains, the course of the rivers, the exposure, the elevation or the depression of the places. He described the character of the early Normans in comparison with the mores and customs of their descendants; the most general endemic diseases and those peculiar to each canton. He gave a brief account of the natural products found there, the nature of the common or mineral waters that flowed there, and the long series of epidemic diseases that were observed there.
    He made a description of the cantons of Rouen and Caen and obtained from his collaborators those of the canton of Évreux. He provided three life tables (Rouen, Lisieux and Évreux over 40 years) and made comparisons and reconciliations.
  • The second part includes meteorological observations collected in Caen and Rouen during fifteen consecutive years.
  • The third part presents the major constitutions of popular diseases in Caen from 1763 to 1768;
  • The last part presents the diseases that reigned in the climate of Rouen from 1768 to 1777, and describes the various epidemics that occurred in Upper Normandy.

    "In addition to the epidemics of 1770 described in the first volume, he placed [in the last part] the catarrhal epidemic of the summer of 1763, the bilious putrid of 1764 and 1765, the milium that succeeded it, the atrabilious epidemic of 1766 and 1767, and the epidemic catarrh of 1767-1768 in the territory of Caen. The bilious epidemic of 1769, the catarrhal disease of 1770, the epidemic of Gros-Theil in the Roumois, the verminous and malignant putrid and exanthematous putrid of Louviers, the bilious catarrhal disease of 1771 and 1772, the putrid peripneumonia of 1775, the epidemic outbreak observed in Cottevrard, the influenza of 1775, the putrid catarrhal epidemic of Saint-Georges and the putrid peripneumonia of Dieppe in 1776; finally the putrid scorbutic epidemic of 1776 and 1777 in the canton of Rouen."

De regimine sanitatis ad Soldanum Babyloniae.

Florence: Apud Sanctum Jacobum de Ripoli, 1481.

Maimonides wrote De regimine sanitatis in the 1190s in Arabic as a private manual of health for the Sultan Al-Afdal, son of Saladin. It was translated from Arabic into Hebrew in 1244 by Moses ibn Tibbon, and the Hebrew text was the source for the Latin version made later in the century by the Jewish convert Johannes de Capua. Typeset by nuns, and printed by the Ripoli press, housed in the Dominican nunnery of Florence under the direction of the convent’s vicar, Fra Domenico, the Latin edition includes a separate responsum on medical matters that Maimonides wrote for Al-Afdal. Digital facsimile from Google Books at this link.

Transluminal implantation of artificial heart valves. Description of a new expandable aortic valve and initial results with implantation by catheter technique in closed chest pigs.

Eur. Heart J., 13, 704-08, 1992.

Andersen and colleagues invented percutaneous aortic valve replacement (PAVR), also known as percutaneous aortic valve implantation (PAVI), transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) or transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). This procedure replaces the aortic valve of the heart through the blood vessels, instead of by open heart surgery.  See Andersen, H.R. "How transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) was born: The struggle for a new invention," Cardiovasc. Med., 29 September 2021 | https://doi.org/10.3389/fcvm.2021.722693.
